Floating Media

Floating Media

Floating media refers to specially designed materials that float on the surface of wastewater during treatment processes. These media provide a habitat for microorganisms to attach and grow, facilitating the removal of impurities from the water. They provide more surface area for microbial colonisation and encourage the development of biofilms, which improve wastewater treatment effectiveness.

Floating media, also known as Fab Media, plays a crucial role in wastewater treatment processes. Its innovative design and functionality make it an essential component in the removal of contaminants and pollutants from wastewater. Bioflow Industries is a renowned manufacturer and supplier of a high quality floating media used in wastewater treatment solutions. We offer a wide range of floating media products designed to enhance treatment efficiency and water quality.

Advantages of Floating Media in Wastewater Treatment

Floating media offers several advantages that make it a preferred choice in wastewater treatment processes:

Increased Surface Area

The design of floating media provides a significantly larger surface area compared to traditional treatment methods. This increased surface area allows for greater microbial attachment and promotes more efficient treatment processes.

Enhanced Microbial Activity

The large surface area of floating media supports the growth of a diverse microbial community. This leads to enhanced microbial activity and increases the rate of pollutant removal from wastewater. The presence of a robust microbial population helps to break down complex organic compounds and pollutants more effectively.


Floating media offers a cost-effective solution for wastewater treatment. Its efficient design and functionality reduce the need for extensive infrastructure and large treatment systems. Additionally, the enhanced treatment efficiency leads to reduced operational costs and lower energy consumption.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

Installing floating media in wastewater treatment plants is relatively simple and straightforward. The media can be easily integrated into existing treatment processes or incorporated into new designs. Furthermore, the maintenance requirements for floating media are minimal, making it a convenient option for plant operators.
